Since I am really bad at political jokes I'll just stick to the rats okay? ;-) Well they did bring up some associations for me indeed! Are you familiar with Terry Pratchett Sebastian? In one of his books: "The Amazing Maurice and his educated Rodents" rats play the main part. These rats, rather than the more generic swarms you can get from many regular figure ranges, have a lot of character and thus reminded me of that book. I think this is due to the fact there are more than one pose among them.
As to the points, I'm going to score them as 15mm infantry and thus they will net you another 10 points to the board.
